Conveyor Sprocket: Introduction
- Conveyor sprockets are used in conveyor systems to drive the chain. These are saw-toothed gears that are used in combination with conveyor belts or conveyor chains. The profiled wheels connect with a conveyor chain or belt to transmit rotary motion. Sprockets have extensive application and are used in conveyor belts, cars, motorcycles, and other machinery. They are either used to transfer rotatory motion between two shafts where gears are unsuitable or to impart liner motion to track and tape etc.
- Most of the conveyor sprockets are made of cast iron. However, sprockets made from prefabricated steel are becoming fairly popular these days. Conveyor sprockets made of high quality plastic are also increasingly popular due to their widespread application.
Key Drivers of the Global Conveyor Sprocket Market
- Increasing usage of conveyor belts in various end-use industries is anticipated to be one of the key driving factors for the growth of this market. Demand for conveyors in durable goods manufacturing industries such as electronics industry and automotive industry as well as in metal fabrication is anticipated to fuel the growth of the conveyor sprocket market.
- Additionally, non-durable goods manufacturing industries such as food and beverage, chemicals, and petrochemical industries are anticipated to have significant growth opportunities in the near future. This in turn is anticipated to drive the demand for conveyor sprockets.

Premature sprocket wears one of the key challenges of the market
- As the conveyor chain tightens and loosens and due to continuous insertion of the conveyor chain into the sprocket, the sprocket eventually faces wear & tears as a result of normal use. This is one of the common challenges, especially with cast iron sprockets. This restricts the growth of the conveyor sprocket market. Greater the number of sprockets in contact with the chain drive, greater is the chance of more movement of the spring loaded chain tensioner, causing more wear.
Plastic sprockets to offer attractive opportunities for the conveyor sprocket market
- Plastic sprockets are making inroads in several industries, becoming a viable alternative to metal sprockets in power transmission drive applications. Corrosion resistance, lubrication-free functioning, as well as low coefficient of friction etc. are some of the advantages leading to the rising demand for plastic sprockets. This is anticipated to create new opportunities for the growth of the conveyor sprocket market.
Asia Pacific region offering growth avenues to the global conveyor sprocket market
- Geographically, the global conveyor sprocket market can be divided into five regions: North America (NA), Europe (EU), Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America (SA).
- Europe and North America have a strong market for conveyor sprockets as most leading manufacturers are concentrated in these regions. Countries such as the U.S., Germany, and U.K. are strong industrial manufacturing markets, resulting in the presence of more conveyors and sprockets manufacturers.
- Asia Pacific is one of the promising regions for the growth of the conveyor sprocket market. Some of the top manufacturers of conveyor belts and sprockets in Asia are concentrated in Southeast Asian countries such as China and Japan.
- Other regions such as South America and Middle East & Africa have strong growth potential in the conveyor sprockets market.
